I wake and find that it’s in the bathroom, waiting for me to join it. It sits on my toothbrush, restless to give my lips a kiss. I brush like there’s a demon in the depths of my mouth, it must be purged before I utter a single syllable. I spit. And rinse.

You described very well. It is a beautiful poem.
Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. Pain leaves an indelible mark. 🙂
This is wild. Honestly, this is superb horror writing. The way you’ve turned something as ordinary as brushing one’s teeth into something surreal and hellish is just mind-blowing. I mentioned over at Masticadores that it reminded me immediately of depression. This is amazing writing, Terveen. May your golden pen never run out of ink! 🙂
Thank you so much, Mike. Sadness and depression can be a horror story playing out inside us. We all know pain in some way or the other and it can be hellish. Are we ever free of it? That’s a question that may be too scared to know the answer. Thanks so much. You make feel like a rock star. 🙂
This is a particularly fantastic detail, Terveen, but the whole piece is stellar from start to finish.
Thanks so much, David. That line surprised me. 🙂
This is intense, pain is intense, it gave me the creeps which is testimony of your great writing.
Thank you so much, Cassa. Pain can be a b*tch. Mental and physical.
Pain sometimes feels difficult to put into words, but you have managed that, Terveen, with this excellent piece of writing.
Thank you so much, Davy. Pain is often a different experience for each one of us. Difficult to explain indeed.
This is such an incredible story, Terveen!
Thanks so much, Dawn. 🙂
wow! this is so powerful; I’ve never had continuous pain of this kind ever; powerful and metaphoric —
Thanks so much, John. I really hope and pray that you never do. Keep that inner clown alive. 🙂
Lol; I will !
Fantastically visceral write about pain. I enjoyed it very much, Terveen. 😊
Thank you so much, Jeff. I appreciate it. Have a good weekend. 🙂
You’re most welcome, Terveen. Always. Thank you. Wishing you a wonderful weekend too. 😊
This is brilliant writing, Terveen! Wow! What a ride!
Thanks so much, Aaysid! Appreciate it! 🙂
Sometimes one just look normal and healthy, but inside one has pains, insomnia, mental anguish. And people don’t even sympathize since they think you are fine.
Exactly Haoyan. Mental suffering isn’t visible and that’s why it’s so often neglected. Thanks for the read and comment. 🙂
